The Hampstead Carol

Written for a divided choir, this carol was a collaboration between myself and my friend Maia Béar. The carol bridges Maia's two mother languages: French and English. Each refrain has the Latin exclamation of "In Excelsis Deo!" (trans. "God in the highest!"). The subject of the carol is the Virgin Mary.

   The carol was premiered in the winter of 2019 by the Old Royal Naval College Trinity Laban Chapel Choir, conducted by Ralph Allwood.
